Vibrational Semantics – a new text series on the performative use of the voice. The first in the series is DEAR EAR by artist, writer and poet Cia Rinne. DEAR EAR is a fragmentary text, moving through subvocalisation, lingual acrobatics, ingressive speaking and rhythmic reading in various experiences of the voice.
The Vibrational Semantics text series explores the voice’s ability to shift between signification and sonority, from speech sound to noise. Questions of linguistic ambiguity, embodied voicing and feeling/ meaning are investigated in relation to the place and presence of the performed voice.
Vibrational Semantics involves several newly commissioned text works curated by Samuel Brzeski and commissioned by Lydgalleriet. The texts will be released in the months building up to Samuel’s solo exhibition with Lydgalleriet, opening February 2023.
Vibrational Semantics is part the EU program Oscillations–Exercises in Resilience, also supported by Bergen Kommune.
